  1. Don't knock it until you've tried it 😐 Alta Rica is the best and only instant coffee I will drink.
  2. Never like them, but I do drink a lot of Nescafe Alta Rica instant which is very expensive and because of the OP I looked on Amazon where it is the cheapest I have ever seen it.
  3. I have used Hiscox in the past for liability and also for accidental damage/theft and found them good to deal with. Gear was covered even if stolen from a parked vehicle as long as it was out of sight. I can't say how watertight there liability insurance is in particular with regards Alamy contract but the prices seemed reasonable to me.
  4. I have a Prime account, sounds interesting and I wasn't aware. The trouble is it means you are tied to Prime and as I seem to have exhausted the watchable films and TV series and the rest seems to be dross I was thinking of unsubscribing. Not sure I would want to be tied to them tbh. I'm not sure the 'free' postage is sufficient reason to keep me with them.
  5. I suppose this is the norm now on social media and they couldn't even be bothered to remove the watermark.
  6. Sadly not, I am on Metronidazole, the dentist and the chemist said alcohol would make me very ill. Having researched it online it advises not to drink until at least 3 days after finishing the course 😢
  7. Thank you William, I am sure they will once the antibiotics do their thing, just taking a bit longer than I had hoped. 😒
  8. BAD - I am on anti biotics with a gum infection which is quite painful and making me feel ill. BAD - I have my second Covid vaccine today, this could be viewed as good but as it will make me feel even worse then it is BAD BAD - I cannot drink alcohol whilst on the antibiotics and not for three days after I finish the course. GOOD - Nothing really but there is potential for a great stage of the Giro d'Italia today so I will watch that on telly this afternoon.
  9. Thanks, yes I guess it does, it just took me by surprise.
  10. Submitted a single image, a product shot so it had a lot of work done in post, submitted and waited. Recently I have been getting the email within a day or two at most but this time nothing. I don't tend to check in every day as I don't sell that many images so after a few days I feared the worst and it must have failed. This morning I check in to Image Manager and its sitting there waiting for Keywording but no email ever arrived? A first for me.
  11. I have just sold an image I inadvertently left available for Personal use, for a little over $8 so aroond £2.50 to me. Okay my fault for not opting it out for PU but its an old image which I have sold mutliple times for as much as $225. I guess I'd better go through my small collection and see how many I have missed and tick that box.
  12. 4th April 2013 $51.65 it sold again 3 years later, this time for $59.42 so held its price well.
  13. My only experience with the Lumix cameras is the GH5, which is not renowned for its low light capability, the GH5S however is very good at higher ISO but lacks the fantastic IBIS of the GH5. So, to come down a size to the GX9, that too has fantastic IBIS and if you use a native lens with AIS then you can shoot at lower ISO than some cameras and so low light is quite feasible. Watch
  14. Next one Busker on street, what category does that go under? Occupations? hmmm
  15. How important are the primary and secondary categories when preparing an image for sale? I often have difficulty deciding on a suitable one, nevermind two, for instance, just a picture of a street, not really architecture, not sure about lifestyle but not what I would choose and not really travel, or perhaps it is. Another image of a church, well I could use architecture for primary but what for secondary? I really think there needs to be a few more choices
  16. I had a Fuji X-E1 when they first came out with the 16-55 and 55-200 lenses. Fujinon lenses are up there with the best. However I sold it and the lenses when I started getting into video as at the time Fuji had no decent video solution.
